Undo a Bank Reconciliation

There may be times when you need to make corrections to previously reconciled transactions. Your Rentec Direct property management software allows you to undo reconciliations that were previously made to make any necessary corrections or adjustments.

Note:  Prior to undoing a reconciliation, you may want to review the option with your accountant.

How to Undo a Reconciliation

The following steps will walk you through how to undo a bank reconciliation.

In your Rentec Direct account: 

  1. Click Banking
  2. Right-click on the account and choose Notes & History 
  3. Click the Undo link 
  4. Press Confirm Undo

Undo Reconciliation

After a reconciliation has been reversed, the ledger  Notes & History will automatically be updated to reflect that action. Those transactions will revert to being unreconciled, and will again be listed within the Reconciliation tool. 

The Undo option is available for all reconciliations processed on or after December 14, 2020. If the reconciliation occurred before that date, use the instructions in the next section to undo individual transactions. 

Un-reconcile One or More Individual Transactions

In the event you inadvertently marked a transaction reconciled and wish to reverse it, those items will need to be edited individually.

System AdviceWe recommend you add a new note to the account Notes & History to ensure you have a clear trail of the chain of events. Once you have un-reconciled the transaction, that transaction will be available for a new reconciliation.
